Decanters – a change from ‘dolls’

Beer Tray

Or, a beer charcuterie board. Made of solid American Oak, this includes 6-12 oz beer glasses, a board with an area for your cheeses and other delicious munchies, and a recessed area to slide the glasses into securely. It also has antique English handles. It would make a beautiful gift. Add a gift certificate to one of our breweries and, well, someone who loves beer would be delighted to receive this!

America’s Native Spirit

Did you know that about Jim Beam?

In 1964, under President Lyndon B. Johnson’s administration, Congress declared bourbon “America’s native spirit”. Today, bourbon is recognized around the world as America’s native spirit, led by Jim Beam®, the world’s No. 1 bourbon.

Did you know that just because it’s ‘whiskey’, doesn’t make it ‘bourbon?’

Here are a few facts from their website:

  • Bourbon is kind of like whiskey’s “sweet spot.” Because corn is a sweet grain, the more corn, the sweeter the whiskey—and bourbon needs to be at least 51% corn.
  • In 1964, under President Lyndon B. Johnson’s administration, Congress declared bourbon “America’s native spirit”.
  • The only thing that can be added to bourbon is water (and only to bring it down to proof).
  • By law, bourbon must be aged in NEW charred oak barrels.
  • It can’t say “bourbon” on the label if it’s not distilled and aged in the United States. It can’t be “Kentucky Straight Bourbon” unless it’s distilled and aged in Kentucky for at least 2 years. And it can’t say Jim Beam® unless it’s been made by seven generations of one family.

Check out their website for an interesting family business of seven generations. Beautiful story and some really remarkably beautiful decanters and ‘go-withs.’

Yep, stop by Bahoukas Antique Mall and Beer MuZeum for more fascinating Jim Beam collectibles. We’ll be watchin’ for ya.
